Benny Cristo to Fly Czech Flag at Eurovision 2020

Seven artists were in the running to represent the Czech Republic in Rotterdam. The winner was decided by 50/50 jury and online/public voting. Tonight they announced the results and the official representative for the Czech Republic. 

Benny Cristo has won Eurovision Song CZ 2020 and will represent the Czech Republic at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam with the song “Kemama”.

He will perform in the first half of semi-final two in Ahoy Arena on Thursday 14 May.

 

The Czech Republic in the Eurovision Song Contest

The Czech Republic debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 with the song “Malá Duma” by Kálas, coming last in the semifinal with 1 point. They’ve competed a total of 8 times in the contest, first qualifying for the final in 2016 with “I Stand” by Gabriela Gunčíková, finishing 25th.

Things also improved once the Czech Republic introduced their online national final Eurovision Song CZ. Mikolas Josef took the country to the top six in 2018, while Lake Malawi secured a solid eleventh place finish in 2019.

With Benny Cristo now winning the third edition of ESCZ, no doubt they’ll be aiming to continue their recent success.
